DCC connections

I am trying to put a Phonex sound system a P8 in a G scale Bachmann Heisler locomotive. It has a DCC board in the coal tender with 12 screw down connections 1-12.
I’m wondering if there is a chuff connection on one of the lugs an which ones is track power. Does anyone have a idea about the connections. I checked with Bachmann and they don’t have a schematic available.
I do track power not DCC so I don’t need a sound card for DCC.

Try this site, It might have what you’re looking for, it mentions chuff connections

Thanks but it doesn’t show the same DCC board that’s in the Heisler
